“Our home from home in the sunshine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

person found this review helpful

this was our 2nd visit to this apartment as we were here in August and knew from then where we wanted to stay when we returned. Again for stay in this apartment did not disappoint. Everything you could need is here for you and more. Despite it being october we had breakfast on the balcony every morning and the sun shone all week. The position of this apartment is ideal for sun all day long. We are already looking at coming back next year perhaps 2 different 2 week holidays start and end of year. Of course it will be this apartment we will come to and Phil and Diane (the owners) cant do enough for you to make your holiday perfect.

I have just returned from a week long stay at the Old Village Prestige and had a fabuolous time. The apartment was fantastic and had everything you could need. The roof terrace was great for catching the sun and relaxing. Felt like home from home! I would certainly recommend staying here to anyone.

My husband and I were here for two weeks the apartment was everything we hoped for and more. Very spacious comfortable and everything we could have wished for. We loved the position of the apartment for the views and not only a beautiful large balcony to sit out on we also had the roof terrace as well. We loved the pool. Weather was perfect sunshine every day.. We dined at Mayflower restaurant twice at the marina also in the old village we liked Zanzibar we had several meals there. Our daughter,her husband and our two grandchildren Jack (6) & Ellie (4) were with us they stayed in the old village as well so we all had a lovely holiday. We would meet up at the pool Jack and Ellie's swimming has came on brilliantly and meet up for dinner.We could have loved to have stayed longer even two weeks flew in. Thanks again to Diane and Phil for allowing us to stay at their beautiful apartment and for making our holiday so enjoyable.

“I'll be Back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Everything about this apartment lived up to the expectation given from the previous reviews. My wife and I spent 10 days at the apartment and wished we could have stayed longer. The position of the apartment gave exceptional views, the roof terrace was private and spacious. The lounge was huge and good level of equipment from Sat TV to Ipod player. The kitchen has everything you need, cut down on the packing and use the washing machine.
We did eat in the Village complex at the Tapas which was good and reasonably priced. There are several other places to eat and drink if you did not want to go into town.
The walk into town was a leisurely 20/25 minutes depending where you wanted to go. For those who like a bit more of a challenge then walking to Quarteria to the far end takes about 75 mins (just think of a cold reward at the end)
The Marina was really busy, they have added outside decking to a lot of restaurants, one particular bar (O'Neill's) had very good entertainment with one Band "The Six Irishmen" brilliant.
We chose not to hire a car this holiday but we did use the local bus service to get to Faro (15 walk to bus stop and 40 min ride to centre Faro.)
All in all this was a great holiday, managed to get through 5 books and would book this apartment again.

“Great location, great apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Just returned from 2 weeks in this apartment with my husband. Apartment is really clean and well appointed. Location is great-a leisurely 20 min walk away from the marina and 25 min to the beach. Apartment has lovely roof terrace and balcony if you fancy a change from the pool area. Some restaurants in the complex if you don't want to walk to the marina but we did it most nights as we preferred the ones there and the walk is really easy. Mini-market onsite as well. Overall a really enjoyable break, ideal for couples and families.

“Fantastic apartment, great location and everything you could need for a wonderful holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We have just arrived home from a fantastic holiday in this Prestige apartment located at the Old Village in Vilamoura and we couldn't fault the place! It was very well equipped with everything you could need, including a safe, hairdryer, stereo system, sun loungers for the private roof terrace and BBQ. The kitchen included everything you could possibly need for a self-catering holiday, but it would be a shame to miss out on some of the superb restaurants located at the Old Village and down at the fabulous Vilamoura Marina, which is about 20mins walk or 5 min drive with plenty of free parking. The apartment was very easy to find and the private roof terrace with stunning sea views was definitely a highlight. The Old Village is very well kept and so pretty, the fantastic Princess Garden restaurant is not to be missed! Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Diane and Peter's lovely Prestige apartment, they were so helpful and always contactable should there be a problem. We are already looking at going back next year!

“holiday that opened my eyes to the most beautiful area in portugal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Hhaving travelled all over Europe and the Med,Portugal was one of the last places that we had never visited.If only we had come here sooner.
The apartment in the old village was immaculate and fully equipept we felt like it was our home the moment we walked through the door.Our roof terrace was higher than everyone else's so we had privacy and felt like "The King of the castle" .We found some great restaurants in the complex that servced good food and wine at a reasonable prices and were only a stones throw away.We thought we might need a taxi to get back from the marina but found the walk quite short and so relaxing it never occurred to us to get one for the rest our holiday.We hired a car only because we wanted to see as many beaches as we could some were busy but all were beautiful with there own unique qualities.We have been back one day and have tried to rebook for September but the only available time is Mid October which we cannot make.Will have to find another property on the complex but will always feel like we have second best.
